Is the jr pass for a week travel from Tokyo to Ueda to nagano to kanazawa to Tokyo cost effective? Are we able to use Shinkansen and rapid rail? Thank you ,

Hi there,

Yes, a 7-day Japan Rail Pass will help you make good savings when used for travel to Kanazawa and back. The return fare is very similar to the cost of a JR Pass, so any additional travel is basically where the savings are to be had :)

I hope this helps!
